Unsudden Death

1998-2000 duVivier


flickering memories, once pretty
now senesce in autumn
golden-red skies

listen to winds flit by
through dry wheat stalks
chittering insects

smell the sweet dryness of soil
and Prairie desolation
featureless plains

somewhere, over there, I think
i saw something crawling
in the familiar earth

i conjure up memories
of a powerful Matriarch
a benevolent teacher

yes, it was the first toil, the hunt
of labouring & learning
that she cherished

may i touch your cool cheek
before darkness settles?
memory set on eternity
